Reminds me of the morning clouds this morning. Lovely.
I’d never heard the words “kheer aur shakkar,” which means I didn’t know where “seersucker” had come from. What’s so funny is that my favorite dishcloths are the ones my mother loved to make from sugar and cream cotton yarn.
And I haven’t found good seersucker for years. I love it!
Readers who are curious about the picturesque etymology behind seersucker can read the account in the American Heritage Dictionary:
My Mom still makes those! They are the best. And I couldn’t agree more – where has all the good seersucker gone?!
A lovely post.. You’ve woven together words and a glinpse of nature almost seamlessly…
A lovely observation 🙂
I’ve shot hostas several times this year. Your image is much better than what I’ve done. Take a bow, pls.
I salute you! The photo with its colour and texture, plus your apt words are so GOOD!
Beautiful details and color.
Nice picture. True about seersucker.
Very nice and beautiful color.
Very nice picture! I like your blog, poetry makes you stop at each picture and makes you think, gives them so much more meaning than just scrolling and browsing…
And thank you for visiting my blog. 🙂
Words and picture are a perfect match!
Beautiful texture on the leaf and great simile!
Hosta la vista.
🙂 good one!
Mountains for ants.
I haven’t heard of seersucker in years — this made me smile! 😀
